Stuffing. It’s the quintessential holiday side dish. The question is, short of making a casserole or heaping the remainder onto a sandwich, what do you do with all that leftover dressing after Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner?
I may just have the answer for you, and it’s simpler than you think.
Holiday leftover meals should be simple. After slaving away on the main meal, the last thing you want is some complicated preparation for all that is left behind after the main meal. This couldn’t be easier. It takes just a few minutes, tastes amazing and is a great way to use up some leftover stuffing, turkey or ham and any leftover gray you might have.
And it’s pretty elegant to boot. That’s something in itself.
In the time it takes you to finish reading this post, you can whip up something pretty amazing from your Holiday leftovers. If you have guests hanging around the house, this is the perfect brunch idea, as it has all the flavors of the holiday, but dresses them up just enough to be fresh.
My family loved this recipe, I hope yours will as well.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
Nothing. This was a serious hit with all but the middle kiddo, who dislikes dressing, so I made his croquette out of mashed potatoes instead. (More on this later!)
